So I don’t have a favourite movie, I’m too indecisive for that but I decided to do The Hobbit today for Califronails nail art challenge because I wanted to try out a new polish I picked up using my Boots points.
For this mani I used Barry M Gold Glitter, Black Multi Glitter (the one I wanted to try out) and their nail art pen in white, China Glaze Mingle With Cringle and a random silver striper, which I got in a set of 50 from eBay about 2 years ago!
The Barry M Black Multi Glitter wasn’t as great as I had hoped. In the bottle you can see the tiny little silver and holo glitters perfectly fine but on the nail its a little underwhelming. But I went ahead and used it anyway.
To create this look I used one coat of Black Multi Glitter and dabbed on the Gold Glitter, just over the tips of my nails. I wanted it to look like the piles of gold that Smaug lives in. I then used the nail art pen to write on the title and draw the silhouette of Sting on my thumb nail. To make it look it more like the title in the film I then used a thin nail art brush to paint over the white with Mingle with Cringle and I used the silver to go over Sting, I tried to make it look like it was glowing… I topped it all off with HK Girl topcoat and applied my favourite cuticle cream from Burt’s Bees.
I know it’s not the best nail art but I’m learning – slowly! What do you think and what’s your favourite film?
